American Idol 2016 San Francisco Audition – Adam Lasher – Knockin on Heaven’s Door

Adam Lasher – Knockin on Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan- Adam is back with a new spiffy look and a new attitude! Gone is the headband, long hair and t shirt from last season. His hair is trimmed–the singer is clean shaven and dressed in a suit jacket. If you’ll recall, Adam had played guitar with a broken finger when he auditioned for season 14. This time, hands healthy, he performs a samba-flavored version of Bob Dylan’s “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.”  I think I liked his audition from last year more. But I get that he’s offering something different to the judges they’ve yet to see. Adam could prove to be an interesting, versatile contestant. I have to admit, I was really surprised when he was cut in Hollywood last year. The Latin flair is fitting. You may also recall from last season, that Adam is Carlos Santana’s nephew. The judges liked the arrangement and his new look. They give Adam another chance. 3 yeses
